Today I received my limited edition, Rambo statue from the good folks at Hollywood Collectibles. The statue was placed inside a molded styrofoam shell which was then put in a well designed packaging box which was then placed in a larger shipping box filled with packing nuts. If you think I’m making too big a deal about how pleased I was with the secure packaging, then you don’t know my delivery guy.
The statue, about 12 inches tall, is itself is a thing of beauty. Sculpter, Edinho Maga shows Rambo standing triumphant. Each statue was hand painted by Dan Cope who did a wonderful job of making the statue even more lifelike. Hollywood Collectibles always turns out quality items and this Rambo statue is no exception. Although this piece is sold out, there are other Rambo collectibles, Rocky items, and many other movie collectibles as well.
Before I bring this post to a close I want to especially thank Mark from Hollywood Collectibles. Mark contacted me once I had posted photos of Edinho’s work on the StalloneZone. Mark was impressed. I put the two into contact with each other and the rest, as they say, is history. Throughout the whole process Mark kept me informed on the statue’s progress. It was also Mark who made it possible for SZoners to get a discount if they ordered a statue. Mark and Hollywood Collectibles have been great to deal with. I hope that future Stallone projects are given the same treatment. I could say more, but it’s time to go clear off a place on the mantle for my Rambo statue.
